Abstract

The University Libraries' Information Commons opened its doors on January 2, 2002. Its mission is to create an inviting out-of-classroom environment for learning, growth, and enrichment through student-focused research assistance, outreach to all students, and innovative instructional services. This case study details the history of the Information Commons at the University of Arizona, the planning strategy, available services and high-tech equipment, partnerships with other campus units, staffing, lessons learned, challenges, policies, and assessment mechanisms.
